Anybody recommend a manufacturer or model of tire for my 60? I'll never wear out a set in my lifetime. I'm looking for 13.6-38's and two 12" double bevel rims. I can get the front rib tires here at TSC. I don't have a bunch of money to spend on this. To tell the truth, the tires are my number one reason why I don't have it running yet. I figured about $2-2.5k on rims and tires. I thought about used, but can't find any. If some amazingly show up on CL, they're gone already. Someone told me to get a 23 degree tire if I wanted to enter antique pulls with this tractor.

Thanks for your input. :D

Put a set of I beilve 16.4/34s on a 620 that I am restoring ( Not my tractor) last year, they are Firestones and seem to fit the bill for a 2 cylinder. Firestone and Carlisle is who I would look at and in that order. Can say I have a lot of experience with good year, but from hearing horror stories of pickup tires failing, I will stick with my Michelins on the Truck not sure how their ag tires are doing. Always has good luck with Firestone and Carlisle Ag tires.

Maybe I don't really need new rims. A coat of paint might do the trick! :lol::laugh::crazy:

I was looking at the Firestone road and field tires. Can anybody recommend a location to buy?

Plenty of tire places, but none that fit my budget...:gaah:
I did find a "discount" tire place, but their cheap tire are ones you don't want, i.e. Chinese.:rocket:
I've never met a good Chinese tire:snipersmilie:

Just learned tonight we have a discount tire now. Best advice I can give you is to use the manufactures websites to locate dealers and call around for the best price.

Love the old two cylinders, spend many a day plowing with them. There is a tractor salvage yard in Sikeston, Missouri that may have rims for a decent price, I knew the previous owner but can't speak for the current folks. As for tires, the 60s/720s/730s look nice with Rice and Cane (now called R2) tires, the same folks might have tires and rims. We ran rice and cains on all of ours, they wear well and pull extremly good in wet and/or plowed ground.

One of the rims on the 620 I am restoring came from the place, can't recall the name right now.

I tried calling this morning and they told me they don't carry anything close to what I'm looking for. I had high hopes for this place as this wasn't the first time I had heard of them. An old local farmer recommended them but couldn't remember the name. He said he goes there a least twice a year. I just didn't have any luck finding them. So thanks neeltburn, I do appreciate the info. :thumbup1gif:

Looks like I'm going to have to order new tires and rims. I know of a place in Dyersburg TN called Tucker Tire. They have tires and free shipping to Nashville. They do a weekly run there. I'll just have to order and send them some new rims to get them mounted. Anybody want to sponsor about $2k for the 60 project? :lol:
